mmon people --the non-slaveholders and the small slaveholders — whom the ruling class desired to reduce to vassalage, Of the 12,000,000 of inhabitants in the Slave-labor States, at the beginning of the war, the ruling class — those in whom resided, in a remarkable degree, the political power of the States-numbered about 1,000,000. Of these, the large land and slave holders, whose influence in the body of the million named was almost supreme, numbered less than 200,000. In 1850, says Edward Atkinson, in the Continental Monthly for March, 1862, page 252, there were in all the Southern States less than 170,000 men owning more than five slaves each, and they owned 2,800,000 out of 3,300,000. The production of the great staple, cotton, which was regarded as king of kings in an earthly sense, was in the hands of less than 100,000 men. The remaining 11,000,000 of inhabitants in the Slave-labor States consisted of 6,000,000 of small slaveholders and non-slaveholders, mechanics, and la

After investigation instructions were given to the Postmaster-General to inform Mr. Atkinson and all postmasters in the United States that the mails would be closed to further transmission of the publications. In justification of his action, Mr. Atkinson declared that the tracts referred to were reprints from government publications and as such were rightfully entitled to circulation through the mails. Mr. Atkinson's publications include The distribution of products (1885); Industrial progress of the nation (1889); The Science of Nutrition (1892); Taxation and work (1892); Ever

The chief of the Sioux (Red Bird) resolved to be revenged, and he and some companions killed several white people. General Atkinson, in command in the Northwest, finally captured Red Bird and a party of Winnebagoes. Red Bird died in prison soon af were murdering the Menomonees, who were friendly to the white inhabitants. Black Hawk crossed the Mississippi, and General Atkinson took the field against him; but in July the cholera broke out among the troops, and whole companies were almost destroyed. In one instance only nine survived out of a corps of 208. Atkinson was reinforced, and, with a command greatly superior to that of Black Hawk, pressed him so closely that the latter sent the women and children of his band down the MississippWarrior returned to Prairie du Chien. The contest was renewed the next morning between Black Hawk and troops led by General Atkinson, when the Indians were defeated and dispersed, with a considerable loss in killed and wounded. and thirty-six of th

ght, in two letters, over the luxurious living of the English Rothschilds. But we all like to philosophize about luxury and give it advice-and all the more the less we share of it; just as it was said of Cardinal de Retz, that he made up for an utter neglect of his own soul by exercising an abundant supervision over the souls of other people. There is doubtless a great drawback on all the direct good done by great riches, although in many respects one has to recognize this good. Mr. Edward Atkinson thinks that all the Vanderbilt wealth is not, as such things go, too large a commission for its founder to have earned by the actual cheapening of the freight on each barrel of flour from the West to the East. It is usually claimed by the advocates even of mercantile trusts that, though the immediate effect of such organizations is to raise the price of the necessaries of life, the trusts tend to lower them in the end by methodizing and cheapening the production.

When, after Mr. Sumner's death in 1874, there was a deadlock in the Massachusetts Legislature over the election of his successor, Mr. Garrison was approached by one of the Republican leaders to know if he would accept the position, and replied: Your friendly and complimentary letter of inquiry causes Ms. Mar. 28, 1874, to Edward Atkinson. me very great surprise, because, although we have lived to see many strange occurrences in our day, I deem it scarcely more supposable that, under any fortuitous combination of circumstances or rallying of forces, I should be chosen successor of Charles Sumner in the U.
